I Failed Cloth Diapering
January 5, 2011 12:09 pm | by

Confession time: I failed cloth diapering... at least my first attempt that is.When my twins were newborns, money was tight, really tight. During an online search, I was introduced to the idea of cloth diapering. Hours of internet research later, I knew this was what was going to save my family's budget. I shared with my husband, who was indifferent to the idea, but definitely wasn't willing to invest the hundreds of dollars required for start up. I devised a brilliant idea to eBay off some extra stuff around the house to make enough to buy a few start up

Happy 2011 from the Cotton Babies team! New year inspires fresh beginnings and lots of promise.

Do you make resolutions? What are you hoping to change this year? Are you working on changing old habits or establishing new better habits?Yesterday, Jenn shared this in the Cotton Babies e-mail: Working

Receiving Graciously
December 22, 2010 6:09 am | by

I have a bit of a confession to make here, I haven't always been the most gracious person when presented with a gift.There is one time in particular that sticks out in my mind. Five or six years ago during the holiday season, my family received an unexpected knock at our door.

I LOVE GIVING PRESENTS! I live to find perfect gifts for people and find great joy when their eyes light up with just how perfectly customized it is for them.

Another time I heard a friend mention

Five years ago today, the first shipment of bumGenius cloth diapers arrived at Cotton Babies. So today, we're celebrating bumGenius' 5th birthday with a giveaway. If you are new to cloth diapering and haven't heard the history of bumGenius, we invite you to take a few minutes to learn about how it all began in Jenn's own words. The bumGenius brand has come a long way in five short years, from a white pocket style diaper to a dozen colors, five Artist series prints, and three styles of bumGenius diapers (one size pocket, AIO and Elemental). The bumGenius line also inspired new
